The Senator representing Imo-West and immediate past Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has alleged that the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, were holding secret meetings on how to send him to jail.
The former Governor claimed to have been tipped off by a top detective of the anti-corruption agency.
The Punch reported part of a text message allegedly sent to Okorocha by the operative as follows:
“Your Excellency, I will like to give you this information. You must be careful. There is a plan to either eliminate you or sink you politically.
“They said you want to contest for the deputy senate presidency, a position that will give you an edge to contest as President in 2023, so everything must be done to get you out of the way.
“The arrowhead of this plot is Adams Oshiomhole. He has vowed that he will block you from realising your ambition and the first step towards achieving this was to make sure your preferred successor did not emerge. He has been having secret meetings with our Chairman, Ibrahim Magu, over your matter.
“One of my colleagues, Abdullahi, has been given the task to liaise with INEC and meet with one Aminu in the legal department of INEC and two powerful women in the department as well as some national commissioners over your matter.”
